The Kenya National Delagates Conference on Thursday endorsed Baringo County Senator and KANU party leader Gideon Moi for presidency in 2022.
During the function held at the BOMAS of Kenya on Thursday, attended by various delegates from all over the country, the delegates through a statement read by party secretary General Nick Salat gave Mr. Moi a go ahead to engage other party leaders ahead of the 2022 elections.
Salat urged other political parties to support Kanu in the race for the presidency, saying the party had supported other parties in three previous general elections.
Mr Moi on his part said his key priority would be placing the interest of Kenyans at the centre of his operations.
“Our ideology is simple: every Kenyan should have control of his life with minimal interference from the Government,” he said.
He added that he will soon roll out his manifesto, highlighting how he intends to empower Kenyans economically and combat graft.
“Kanu has come here to announce and declare that 20 years of halftime is over. Kanu is here to reclaim its position at the top echelon of the country’s top leadership. Kanu is back!” affirmed Gideon.
The ceremony was attended by, among others, ODM leader Raila Odinga, his Wiper counterpart Kalonzo Musyoka and Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi.
